England in Australia ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Australia v England

Australia won by 46 runs

36.6

Yardy to Bollinger, no run, there's a confident lbw shout immediately, but it's turned down by Tony Hill and Strauss decides against a review

Australia 142/8   DE Bollinger 0* (1b)

37.3

Tremlett to Bollinger, 1 run, Bollinger's off the mark, he clunks one into the ground and it drops at his feet, Marsh calls him through for a quick single

37.6

Tremlett to Bollinger, 2 runs, almost yorker length now and Bollinger does really well to push that back past the bowler, and hits it well enough to get back for two, to ensure Marsh has the strike

Australia 147/8   DE Bollinger 3* (3b)

38.5

Shahzad to Bollinger, no run, pushed to the off side

38.6

Shahzad to Bollinger, no run, thwacked into the pitch and back at the bowler! Dougie gets it off the middle, but Shahzad deflects the ball to mid-off and prevents a run

Australia 150/8   DE Bollinger 3* (5b)

39.2

Tremlett to Bollinger, no run, oh, Dougie, what are you doing? He's pushed it straight to gully and taken off for a run, sensibly sent back by Marsh, and the throw from gully missed but Bollinger was in trouble had it hit

39.3

Tremlett to Bollinger, no run, beats the bat now, as he tries to force it through cover

39.4

Tremlett to Bollinger, 1 run, pushed out through wide mid-off for a single

39.6

Tremlett to Bollinger, 2 runs, Bollinger throws everything at a pull and slaps it behind square, wide enough of fine leg that he can scurry back for a well-judged second run

Australia 155/8   DE Bollinger 6* (9b)

40.3

Shahzad to Bollinger, 1 run, hmm, Bollinger has got away with one here, he's pulled and got a top edge that lobs safely in the infield. Not smart from Bollinger, with ten overs still to bat

40.6

Shahzad to Bollinger, 1 run, full and straight, Bollinger drives to mid-on and takes off for a quick single, keeping the strike. And the throw from mid-on hits the stumps and allows an overthrow, so in fact Marsh will have the strike. But what's happened here? Tony Hill might have called over already, so the overthrow has been disallowed.

Australia 167/8   DE Bollinger 8* (11b)

41.1

Bresnan to Bollinger, FOUR, and an angry Dougie takes his frustration out with a powerful crunch through cover, finding the gap and finding the boundary!

41.2

Bresnan to Bollinger, 1 run, flicked away through square leg

41.5

Bresnan to Bollinger, 1 run, ooh, Bollinger tries the pull again and mistimes it again! It lobs up towards mid-on and lands safely

Australia 176/8   DE Bollinger 14* (14b 1x4)

42.1

Yardy to Bollinger, FOUR, what a good shot from Bollinger! He's rocked back and cut that through cover, all the way along the ground to the boundary!

42.2

Yardy to Bollinger, 1 run, flicked away through midwicket to give Marsh the strike

Australia 183/8   DE Bollinger 19* (16b 2x4)

43.1

Tredwell to Bollinger, no run, pushed away defensively to the off side

43.2

Tredwell to Bollinger, 1 run, and one block is enough for Bollinger, who throws everything at a slap back past the bowler to get a single to long-on, and would you believe it, that's the 50 partnership

43.4

Tredwell to Bollinger, FOUR, oh, another ripper from Douglas Bollinger! He's quickly on to the back foot and makes Tredwell's ball look shorter than it was, crunching it through cover for another boundary!

43.5

Tredwell to Bollinger, no run, and this time he defends with supreme concentration

43.6

Tredwell to Bollinger, 1 run, and another single as Bollinger turns it to short fine leg

Australia 198/8   DE Bollinger 25* (21b 3x4)

44.1

Yardy to Bollinger, 1 run, tossed up on middle stump and Bollinger jams a drive back down to long-on

44.3

Yardy to Bollinger, 1 run, Bollinger advances and smashes it on the bounce to long on

Australia 203/8   DE Bollinger 27* (23b 3x4)

45.1

Bresnan to Bollinger, no run, punched back down towards mid off

45.2

Bresnan to Bollinger, no run, Bollinger backs away and tries to slap it through cover, can't connect

45.3

Bresnan to Bollinger, 1 run, nudged back past the bowler for a quick single, good, sensible stuff from Bollinger

Australia 218/8   DE Bollinger 28* (26b 3x4)

46.5

Tredwell to Bollinger, 1 run, Bollinger goes the slog, but gets an inside edge to short fine leg

Australia 221/8   DE Bollinger 29* (27b 3x4)

47.4

Bresnan to Bollinger, 1 leg bye, bouncer! Bollinger goes for the hook, but it's crashed into his helmet and run away to third man for a leg bye. He doesn't look in too much strife, he's just bending down to do up his shoelace. He's fine!

47.6

Bresnan to Bollinger, 1 run, pushed to point and the call is "noo, yessss", and yet another throw from England misses the stumps - they've had their chances, and Marsh might have been in trouble at the striker's end again there

Australia 230/8   DE Bollinger 30* (29b 3x4)

48.1

Tremlett to Bollinger, OUT, aah, Dougie's wonderful innings comes to an end! He's slapped Tremlett back over his head and in the air, but running around from mid-off is Shahzad, who actually takes a really good catch running back with the flight

DE Bollinger c Shahzad b Tremlett 30 (51m 30b 3x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 230/9   DE Bollinger 30 (30b 3x4)
